Curse you, Thursday!


Woke up to driving rain and gale-force winds this morning. I lay and bed and thought, “hey, at least it’s Friday.”


To be fair, Uncle B tried to persuade me to accept a lift in this morning, but I was all like “no, no…it’s going to clear by noon! I’ll be fine!”


Never trust an English weather forecast. It pissed down all day and both ways, and my end-of-the-week bike battery wasn’t up to a head wind. I’m counting the minutes to Gin o’Clock. See you tomorrow, when the sky will clear and it really will be Friday.

Tomorrow after work, I make chili.

Today after work, I figure out which &^%* box my can opener is lurking in…

It’s just chilly here. I wish we HAD some rain.

It’s always gin o’clock somewhere to paraphrase J. Buffet.

I always hate those mornings when you discover you’re a day off and it’s not in your favor. Now sweet are the Fri mornings that you wake up in a grump thinking it’s only Thurs and realize your mistake. It’s like being given a gift!

All the ads at Ace’s for me are fur hats.


Sorry about your poopy commute Stoatster. Didn’t you get some flavor of Miata at some point, or am I misremembering?

It actually snowed here! A little and outside my metro area, but still, snow in early Dec., when I thought we’d still be sweating until Advent, is neat.

As I drove to work I found the traffic was relatively light. Noo Awlins people freeze up if the temps drop below 50 F., especially if it’s raining or (mirabile dictu!) snowing.

Oh, I got a Miata alright, Pups. What I didn’t get was my driver’s license.

Sore spot, do not touch.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
